Olivia and Her Sampler With Shaker Box (Afternoon Session)

Instructor: Ellen Chester of With My Needle

Class Details

A handmade Shaker box will hold your needlework treasures -- a scissors case doll, a pincushion and a sampler needlebook. The box inside features an embroidered bottom with luscious purple Dupioni silk lining the box sides. The needlebook is Oliviaís completed sampler.

A petite sampler needlebook will be the focus of this early-bird class, which includes most of the specialty stitches used in the rest of the project, including Algerian eye, alternating double backstitch, backstitch, Belgian cross, closed herringbone, cross stitch, cross stitch over one, double-sided Italian, four-sided, mosaic, nunís, Smyrna and tent stitches.

Class kit includes: Handmade Shaker box, 36-count linen, silk embroidery threads, a needle, Dupioni silk lining, finishing supplies, charts and detailed directions for stitching and assembly. Note: the personalized scrimshaw box label, ruler, and thread winder are not included in the kit but can be ordered separately from the instructor.

Kit Surcharge: $15
